Band: JON SPENCER & THE HITmakers
Who: One of blues-rock hitter Jon Spencer‘s (Hanover, New Hampshire)
gangs alongside Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Boss Hog (with his wife
Cristina Martinez), The Honeymoonkillers and several other projects.
Spencer: “Send out the Hit Signal! This is the
most uncompromising album I’ve ever made!”
Louder Than War says: “Spencer has always injected a dose of the spaced-out blues boy
into his work, but there is still room, within his own vision, to edge closer to something more structured and based on his love of the blues…. The album hits a more constant groove on songs like Primary Baby, a sonic cousin of his best Blues Explosion work, but for the most
part Spencer is bedeviling the listener with the consistency of the unexpected.”
Turn Up The Volume: Jon Spencer is one of those 24/7 music junks whose life circles around making records and then going on the road to rock his tail off. This time he invited his Hitmakers team for this blistering firework album filled with raw-roaring riffs, hefty hooks and loopy licks.
The garage blues groove expert moves and grooves from flipped-out psychobilly (Get It Right Now / Primary Baby / My Hit Parade) to his vintage Spencer hullabaloo(Junk Man / The Worst Facts / Push Comes To Shove) and several schizo hits (Dead Ray / Worm Town / Strike 3) in between. Most of all Jon & his punked-up playmates canned a red-hot big fun album that will cause noisy moshpit madness at their concerts. Holy molly!
